Bioshock 2

bioshock-2-sea-of-dreams-logo-big

With a new demo of bioshock 2 being released I thought I would write about this game today. This game’s story is played out 10 years after the first installment of bioshock. Bioshock received exelent reviews when it was released and is still on the #1 spot on steam’s top rated list.

If you never played the first game it’s basically a first person shooter that allows you to use both weapons and magic powers called plasmids. The game starts out with the main character “Jack” crashing with his airplane. He swims for a lighthouse and inside there’s an elevator that takes you down to the underwater city called rapture, in the eleveator you see a movie showing the ruler of rapture: Andrew Ryan. An Irishman, Atlas, via the service radio found in the elevator, assists Jack in making his way to safety, while Ryan, believing Jack to be an agent of a surface nation, uses Rapture’s automated systems and his phermone-controlled Splicers against him. The only way to survive down in rapture is to use the magic powers called plasmids and to make you more powerful you need adam from little sisters. Getting the adam isn’t an easy task since little sisters is protected by big daddys. Big daddy’s is the most powerful enemies in the game and they won’t give you the little sisters without a fight. If you manage to kill the big daddy you can eighter harvest them for adam or you can rescue them from the sea slugs that corrupts them. Bioshock has the same story setup as half life, where you don’t know anything about anything at the start and the story builds up over time.

The biggest diffrence between bioshock and bioshock 2 is that instead of you playing as Jack you play the first big daddy ever made. This first prototype does lack some of the super strength that big daddys possess, but makes up for it with the ability to use plasmids. Just like the good o’l big daddys in the first game you have a big ass drill on your hand and a powerful rifle. You can also dual wield plasmids and weapon wich is a new feature added.

When you’re so powerful there needs to be something that you fear even more then big daddys. So the big sister was introduced. Big sister is very agile compared to big daddys and she have the ability to suck out the adam by herself so she doesn’t need little sisters. The big sister is the first little sister trying to transform into something similar to how big daddys look and is now ruling the underwater city of rapture.  She is abducting children from the coasts of the atlantic sea   http://www.somethinginthesea.com/. Her goal is to transform the children into creatures like herself.

Instead of being guided by Atlas you are guided by dr Tenenbaum, the inventor of the little sisters. She wants you to hunt the big sister down and kill her. As always you can choose to harvest a little sister to get adam but instead of rescuing her you can adopt her adn put her on the shoulder. This enables you to see adam in dead bodies you can put the little sister down to harvest for adam, while she’s harvesting you need to protect her since the splicers will try to kill her. From what i’ve seen in the demo you can combine diffrent plasmids into traps. You can also find adam in sea slug on the bottom of the sea otuside rapture, like to ones you see when you harvest a little sisters.

Overall there’s not much more to say about the game so far. The demo only revealed small parts of the story. I’m really looking forward to this game, and i’m hoping for a simultaneous pc release since I guess it’s kinda cool in the game developer league to fuck pc gamers over.

If you didn’t see the demo yet I suggest you do:

If you didn’t play the first bioshock game you have until november 30th!
